Instructor: Jenny Wong (Assistant Professor, Beijing Normal University Hong Kong Baptist University, United International College) Fanny Cheung (Advisory Teacher, Education Bureau, HK Government)

Course description:
Do you know that a lot of modern day expressions come from the Bible? The Bible is a source of inspiration for writers like Shakespeare and a major source of English idioms. If you “go the extra mile to help your friend, “eat, drink and be merry” during happy hours, you are quoting from the Bible.

In this course, you will be able to appreciate the beauty of the English Bible by learning its idiomatic expressions, rhetorical devices and influence in the Western world. Towards the end of the course, you will learn how to apply such knowledge in conducting English classes or interest groups with biblical references in schools, churches or family settings.
